It's a beautiful mountain and a great view, but I was absolutely disgusted to see that developers are butchering the mountain to build condos and homes for the rich. It's appalling and I simply turned around and left feeling angry. It's horrible and so disappointing to see such a disregard for nature.

Not just for skiing! Great stop for a picnic in the summer also. We went to Granville Island Market in the morning, picked up a picnic lunch with wine, prosciutto, cheese, local cherries and desserts, then drove up Cypress to the lookout, then continued on until we reached the picnic area around the next turn. It's quieter at he picnic... More

10 minutes from Lions Gate bridge you start the drive up Cypress, the views from the lookout at Highview are spectacular. Vancouver spread out below like a map. Cool. Next up is Quarry picnic area and big grassy area, and the view is even better. Next up is the ski area and the start of some of the best walking... More

If you're looking for great views of the city of Vancouver and Burrard Inlet, then head to Cypress Provincial Park, just a short drive from the Lions Gate Bridge. Was hoping to see some wildlife but the panoramic view more than made up for it:)!! Be sure to bring your camera!

Cypress Falls is a great place to go for a hike! It was our first time and even with a few misturns (trail not really marked) we made it up and down in less than an hour. Some steep spots but made for a great climb. We were lucky to meet a couple and their dog who live in the... More

An easy drive from downtown Vancouver, it's free, and gorgeous. What's not to love! And - we even saw a young black bear here. Took about 15 minutes to drive here from Stanley Park, and it's a gorgeous view once you're up there. Really wonderful, and - unlike Grouse Mountain - completely free! Go!

This is a great place if you have a car to spin up and catch a great view. We just went las tweek(last week in April). The ski season is over but there is a spot about halfway up the mountain to catch a panaramic view of downtown. Best of all - it's free.

Wait for a clear day and take short the ride on Highway 1 out of West Vancouver up toward Cypress Provincial Park and you get spectacular views of Vancouver and Burrard Inlet. Cypress Bowl Road has a turnout just a few miles off of Highway 1 where you can see for miles and miles and kilometers and kilometers.
